    Mio Holiday Lights Parade

    By Jessica Boyce

    The Holiday Lights Parade is happening this Saturday in Mio and there couldn’t be a better way to gear up for the holidays. The parade itself starts at 6:00 pm, but Santa will be at American Physical Therapy starting at 5:00 pm to talk to kids before the parade.

    The parade has been taking place in Mio for around 10 years and the Chamber of Commerce says, “The more lights, the merrier.” Downtown Mio is where the festivities will be happening and the parade will start north of town and proceed south down main street. Right now they have about 15 participants lined up for the Holiday Lights Parade, but there is still time if you would like to be a part of it. The Chamber will take applicants right up until the day before and will work you into the parade. Floats and participants can be businesses, organizations, and even individuals.

    The lighting of the Christmas tree will take place following the Holiday Lights Parade on the courthouse lawn. You can call the Chamber of Commerce for Oscoda County at (989) 826-3331 if you have any questions or would like to be a part of the parade.

    Daddy Dolls has some great gifts for Christmas 

    By Jessica Boyce

    Christmas is a special time to spend with family and friends, but for those individuals and families who have loved ones far away, the holidays can be a difficult time, especially for children. Nikki Darnell and Tricia Dyal of Cheboygan were both Marine Wives and had to deal with their husbands being far away for a majority of the time. That’s why in 2005 they came up with a new company by the name of Daddy Dolls, Inc.

    Daddy Dolls, Inc. is a company that prints loved ones picture on a soft, photo doll to make being separated from loved ones easier for children. This separation could be caused by military deployment, business travel, hospitalization, bereavement, distant relatives, divorce, adoption, incarceration, and more. Whatever reason for the separation, Daddy Dolls, Inc. is here to help. They have a website,, where you can see all of their products including Hug-A-You dolls, Photo Pillows, Photo Tags, Deployment Buddies, Voice Recorders, T-Shirts, Pillow Cases, and Photo Puzzles. All of the items are made here in Cheboygan and shipped all over the world.

    You can place your ordered any time, but if you order before December 5th, you will get your item delivered by Christmas. If your child or someone you know is having a hard time with being separated from their loved one, items from Daddy Dolls, Inc. can be a great Christmas gift so they can always feel like that person is right by their side. Whether you get them a doll or another item, they can feel a little bit better this holiday season.
